Are Low Rolling Resistance Tires Right For Me?
According to research by the Tire and Rubber Association of Canada (TRAC), 88% of Canadian motorists now “feel a strong obligation to protect the environment by ensuring their cars are as fuel-efficient as possible.” If you count yourself among them—or you just want to save more money at the pump—low-rolling resistance tires might be right for you.
According to one study by the National Research Council of Canada, choosing low rolling resistance tires (LRR), sometimes referred to as “fuel saving tires” or “eco-efficient tires,” could reduce fuel use and greenhouse gas emissions by 4-11%.
And while you do trade off some traction for low rolling resistance, laboratory testing using ASTM F1805 standards found “comparable levels of snow traction to non-LRR tires.”
In short, LRR tires are ideal for those looking to reduce emissions and save money at the pump, though they may not be suitable for those who drive in heavy snow and ice. For more personalized advice, contact your local TIRECRAFT expert.
